Maine's New Independent Senator to Caucus with Democrats

Because they're in the majority, said Angus King, not ruling out switching to the GOP if they take over in 2014

Sen.-elect Angus King (I-Maine) plans to caucus with Democrats in the Senate, saying that "affiliating with the majority makes sense."

But King, who won a decisive election last week to succeed retiring Sen. Olympia Snowe (R-Maine), did not rule out caucusing with Republicans if they retake the majority in two years.
